Autoit script for different language window

Recommended Posts



I am writing script to handle the windows based on title, But title will vary for different language.

Is there any possibility to get the window handle for different language?

   ;Get "Preference" popup
   $hWnd = WinWait("Preferences", "", 30)

   If($hWnd <> 0) Then


 ;Wait for "Delete" confirmation popup to appear
   Local  $hWndPopup = WinWait("Remove Computer?", "", 5)
   If($hWndPopup <> 0) Then


I can't use the "Class" name to get window handle because, more then one window has same class name.

Do the different windows have different text in them? If so you can use the class with the visible or hidden text.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Welcome to the AutoIt forum!

Have you tried using the AutoIt window info tool?

This can give you the class/handle/title of the window; also, can give you visible or hidden text as BrewMan has suggested. :)

If you get the parent HWND, you can use this to grab any 'popup' from it:

#include <WinAPI.au3>
$hPopup = _WinAPI_GetWindow($hParent,6)
ConsoleWrite("title: " & WinGetTitle($hPopup) & @CRLF)

Same code would work for both your popups (probably need to loop until the $hPopup is an HWND...only returns hwnd when the window exists).
